    Yes. It has the millionaires and billionaires the one term Marxist flexible president Barrack Hussein Obama enjoys so much along with many millions of illegal aliens and poor. It is well on the way to resembling any medium-sized third world country.

    So lets get rid of it in the interest of moving the discussion along past self imosed belief systems.
    tell that to your master Barack Oblamer who claims the rich don't pay their fair share

    tell that to his marxist midget supporter Robert Reich



    The rich should have no duty to pay as much as the parasite advocates claim they should

    When I lived there every day there were stories of small companies moving out of LA to Nevada. I suspect it is still true today.
    I guess that is why Alabama has seven times the population of California.

    Personal property rights are one of the basis of economics. An economic breakdown occurs when personal property rights are violated.

    Viciously attacking people because of their height now. I should say I am shocked. But I do not lie that well.

    If you find that off topic - that indeed is one of the things we differ alot about.

    I do not understand your posting about past contracts and majorities. Who exactly are you talking about in it?

    Anytime a majority of workers in a union shop want out - there is a legal procedure for them to do so. Its part of the law. The rights of the majority are very much respected.

    Union Facts : How To Decertify Your Union
    You REFUSE to look at the rights of ALL of the governed, especially the NON-GOV'T workers (the majority of the people) that must fund the 2% that work for the gov't through taxation. We the people have rights too, including the right to set gov't employee pay and benefit rates. That is not some "fairness" jive defined by a union, that is for ALL of the people to decide, with NO regard for the wants of any minority no matter how loud or oppressed they claim to be. Was it not strange that we saw no mass exodus of teachers, fleeing WI to higher paying states? After all these "drastic cuts" and "stolen rights" left them destitute an unable to feed their families, right? It is summer time, school is out, time to flee the oppression and head for greener pastures during the off season. ;-)
